No comment day

If u think that u are tired, u are really tired.
If u think u couldn't, it means u will not.
If u want to win but u think
u will not,u probably lose.
In life battles not always will win
most strong and fast-thinking,
but soon or later win
that who was thinking that he is able to do it.

Happy Diwali from Gori Sikh!

Happy Diwali 2009 to all my readers and fellow bloggers! Last year I saw my first Diwali in India and it was crazy. The sky was white at the night from fireworks and local area was like New Year's Eve in Latvia. Beautiful! Golden Temple in Amritsar was unbelievable beatiful place to be (that year sikhs celebrated the release from prison of the sixth guru, Guru Hargobind Ji). I wish I was there with my Indian family!

Anita Lerche. Gori from Demmark singing in Punjabi.

I'm so excited to discover this clip. Anita Lerche is 33-year-old Danish pop-star who is making news around the world with her punjabi songs. When visiting Punjab, she fell in love with punjabi culture and music.

Fully entrenched in the Punjabi circuit, Anita now plans to travel the world with her Punjabi show and already has a tour link-up with famous Punjabi hip-hop singer, Jazzy-B. Already wowing crowds in Europe, she arrives in the U.S. in May, to be quickly followed by a sweep across Canada.

Raising child as a Sikh

Raising child as a Sikh...

How? When to start educating? I have so many questions in my head???

How can I successfully raise a Sikh? Or should I give a choice to my kid to select what he or she wants? Free will opportunity?

I would like to know about other people stories... Especially from mixed-race couples? We all know about hardship of Sikh parents in the west trying to keep Sikh identity. So many boys now prefer to be clean shaven and not to wear a turban, even patka... Even in Punjab girls prefer to marry clean shaven boys....I know from my relatives stories...

I know it's a hard job to raise a Sikh but hopefully I will succeed in it.... Please leave comments

Gora by birth - Sikh by choice

For a long time I wanted to create my own t-shirt design for all Gora Sikhs, so I came up with this slogan.

Gora by birth - Sikh by choice

Please visit my Sikh T-shirt Shop for more desi clothing.

There is one already available on the market and it's great Gora Sikh Pride (created by Mr Sikhnet himself)

Can sikhs marry non-sikhs?

Can sikhs marry non-sikhs? Can sikh marry a catholic, christian, white, someone from other religion, gora? Should sikhs and white people marry? All these questions bring people to my Gora Sikh blog. Everyday someone searches for those answers. There is no universal answer to that. It really depends on parents of the couple (both sides), tolerance, upbringing, personal attitude and willingness to be together and work on relationship.

In my personal experience, I had no problem at all. I'm blessed with my in-laws. There were few relatives who mentioned that there are enough punjabi girls. And what? Gurus taught that everyone is equal. My father-in-law asked them not to come to our Amritsar wedding. I love his spirit (my father's-in-law).

I've been a personal council-psychologist for many of my friends -mixed couples and I know that you have to work hard to succeed. You have to be strong and open with each other and your families. Discuss everything before the marriage...I mean everything... How to celebrate each other festival? Wedding? Religion and upbringing of kids? Becoming sikh or not?

If you are reading this please share your story or views. Yours Gora Sikh
